• The Lancet says Trump's letter contains 'factually incorrect' details.
Medical journal The Lancet has issued this rapid response to comments made by impeached President Donald Trump in his letter to World Health Organization General Director Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, to correct false statements about The Lancet by Trump.
In this letter, The Lancet notes that they did not, as Trump falsely said, comment on the coronavirus crisis in late December 2019.
Their first reports on the novel coronavirus were in mid-January.
Chinese experts took part in its first two reports on COVID-19, the journal says, and Trump is “damaging... efforts to strengthen international cooperation to control this pandemic.”
And from Richard Horton, below, the Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet:
Dear President Trump - You cite The Lancet in your attack on WHO. Please let me correct the record. The Lancet did not publish any report in early December, 2019, about a virus spreading in Wuhan. The first reports we published were from Chinese scientists on Jan 24, 2020.

You may not realize it, but some of the biggest films in movie history have been edited using the same tools some of you use to cut your video of vacationing at Disney World.

Now that the initial furor and shortages have subsided, it’s probably not a bad time to start considering your long-term cleaning and disinfecting plans. Sure, that might seem anywhere from overly cautious to outright ridiculous, but the threat of COVID-19 appears poised to be present for a while and the need for quick travel clean-up […]
With more and more companies moving all their operations into the cloud, the need has never been greater for those with the skills to map exactly how an organization reconstitutes itself in that new environment.
